    I need help with Nintendo DS game repair

    If you have the right equipment for sautering surface mount components which I'm guessing you don't, and that's assuming it didn't rip anything off the board and only the sauter broke. I can't find a datasheet for that component but it's probably a memory controller or something like that.

    Computer takes 15 seconds to get out of sleep

    I had a similar issue and sort of still do now. I have a 750 ti and the driver crashes, and the screen stays black for around 10 seconds whenever i go into sleep and wake up again and if i put it in sleep right after and wake it up it sometimes works.

    Upgrading Router

    It probably doesn't need a firmware update because they don't update that often. I have DSL as well and just use the router/modem that came with our house and service provider AT&T, and have another router connected to that which everyone connects to wirelessly because the crappy motorola router that at&t gave us craps out every few hours with all our devices on it. You also gotta watch out when looking for a router with DSL support and make sure it works with your provider. The ac1600 is probably fine for you. It doesn't really matter which one you get if it has the features you want and supports your provider.

    Ok so you can just shrink the partition with files on it and let the other OS make the partitions like i mentioned earlier.
  5. TheElectronicGeek1


    Yes you just need to shrink the partition that has your files on it. Unless the drive is almost full or isn't very big. You usually need 15 or more GB for windows and maybe 10 for Linux, depending on your distro.

    need help moving windows

    Yeah it likes to be dumb. I was trying to move windows 10 from one of my ssd's to another and it wouldn't work with cloning by a partition manager because there was some data on my D drive or maybe my F drive too that was confused because i was moving SSDs. thankfully both SSDs were samsung and i could use the samsung cloning software which fixed it.
  7. TheElectronicGeek1


    So you can make the partition with the data smaller and leave the rest unallocated and when you install a OS on it it'll automatically partition the unallocated space into partitions it needs. Then if you want to install another OS alongside it, shrink the partition the 1st OS made and let the 2nd OS your installing partition the unallocated space.

    So what do you mean formatted it as a storage device? Are you just going to install something like linux or windows on it?

    need help moving windows

    Use some partition manager to clone the C and efi boot partitions (usually a 200-500mb partition) to the SSD. It might not work because the way windows installs is pretty dumb and it puts some data on the other drive that needs to be there and some other random crap.
  10. TheElectronicGeek1


    You can resize the partition if it has files on it. What are you trying to do?
  11. Your probably fine if you didn't turn it on. Even if you did and it was just a little moist then it still might be fine.

    Is it possible to paint the dark rock pro 4?

    NCIX did a video on painting heatsinks back when they existed... RIP NCIX.
  13. Xeon x5650 with a 775 board and 771 pin mod and overclocked. Don't worry it's easy to do the pin mod. It's about as powerful as a ryzen 5 1600 when overclocked. It's pretty much the best value cpu ever right now, they're like 15$ cpu's. Just get a motherboard that can overclock. Asus p5 is a pretty good motherboard with that cpu. Remember it's socket 775 so get a cooler that will work with it.

    Winrar compression archive making things BIGGER?

    Try changing the compression level and see what it does.
  15. TheElectronicGeek1

    is 2666 mhz ram speed enough?

    You can overclock all memory if your motherboard supports it. Which yours does. You're not really going to lose any fps getting slower ram. At most like 2-5fps.
